It is nearly impossible to find a good pattern for a knit yoni and I see lots of people in different craft communities asking for one. I was curious myself so I decided to just wing it without a pattern and write my own and now I have succeeded. I even used a glow in the dark yarn for the clitoris so she's always easy to find!
Since each vagina is unique and unlike any other, this is less of a pattern and more a guideline to get you started! It is better if yours looks different than mine!
- Varying weights and colors of yarn
- Varying sized needles to accompany the varying weights of yarn
Yarns and needles I used:
Labia Majora - Lion Brand Chenille Thick & Quick (Bulky Weight Yarn) on US 10.5 straights
Labia Minora - Lion Brand Baby Soft (DK weight, but held 2 strands together) on US 8 straights
Clitoris – Bernat Glow in the Dark (Worsted Weight) on US 4 dpns
Gauge is unimportant as this is totally up to you how big or small you want it to be!
Labia Majora and Labia Minora (make 2 using 2 different yarns)
CO 1 st
Row 1: Kfb into st
Row 2 (and all even rows): K
Row 3: k1, m1, k1
Row 5: k1, m1, k1, m1, k1
Row 7: k1, m1, k3, m1, k1
Row 9: k1, m1, k5, m1, k1
Continue this pattern of increasing every second and every second to last st until you get your desired width.
The next few rows: knit all until you get the desired length (allotting extra length for the decreases)
Row 1: k1, k2tog, k to last three sts , ssk, k1
Row 2 and all even rows: k
Repeat this pattern until you have one st left on the needle, cut yarn leaving a long tail for sewing
(please note that this isn't the most ideal pattern for the clit, and even I have a hard time understanding it, haha, so be creative here, you could make a bobble or make a pom pom instead if this way doesn't work for you)
Using DPNS: C03, distributing stitches evenly between 3 needles
Row 1: kfb of each st
Row 2: k1, kfb (repeat on each needle)
Row 3: k1, kfb, k1 (repeat on each needle)
*feel free to continue this pattern if you want your clitoris any bigger!
Row 4: k1, k2tog, k1 (repeat on each needle)
Row 6: k1, k2tog (repeat on each needle)
Row 7: k2tog leaving 1 st on each needle
Draw remaining stitches together with the excess yarn and pull tight. Tie off.
Using tail of yarn, sew Clitoris onto Labia Minora
Using tail of yarn, sew Labia Minora onto Labia Majora
Fold in half, and using tail of yarn, sew along the bottom of the Labia Majora, about an inch from the folded base.
